    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The base pay is pretty good, benefits are ok too, and some of your co-workers will be cool as well. Depending on contract you can probably swing a desirable security clearance too.

    Cons

    Benefits, while good, are really expensive. Upper management doesn't communicate with staff unless they have to. Given less than a weeks notice that merit increases wouldn't be paid to anyone, made the whole merit review process a farce.

    No big contract wins in several years, growth only by buying other companies

    Advice to Management

    Communicate, honestly. Actually, communicate something that's not full of bad buzz speak. Not giving raises to billable staff whose bill rates went up is not ok.

    I worked at Acentia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Offers great benefits for employees. Is good at placing you on contracts where your talents can be used well. Also have good online tools for further training.

    Cons

    Not a lot of communication with the home office if you work off site.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in touch more regularly with off site employees.
